Linden keeps his attire simply, having a dislike for too many layers or restrictive-feeling clothing.
His current outfit consists of a simple white toga that reaches up and goes over his left shoulder, a short sleeve covering it and part of his upper arm. The toga has gilded lining above the rim of the sleeve and 'skirt' as well as around the waist.
Usually he's seen wearing his favorite, although slightly worn, shawl intended for when he's out traveling. It's colors have mostly dulled, but he seems to keep it well cared for, no noticeable cuts or fraying present anywhere. The shawl seems to usually carry a strong scent of various flowers.
Besides these, Linden also has 'goatshoes' attached to his hooves, modest ones that protect them from long hikes and time spent travelling.
Compared to his older outfit, his religious attire is still in roughly the same style.
His old shawl is replaced with a deep red scarf that Linden is able to wrap around his head, usually when he's wearing the mask he has recently started using while performing his duties as a Blessed.
Meanwhile, he wears a longer version of his old toga which now appears to be almost robe-like while the one short sleeve it had is far longer with this toga.
Jewelry: A golden Compass given by Illthilior as a gift on their first proper meeting. (x)
A collar given to him by Rosa, acting as a ring to prove that they are together. It matches with Rosa's collar as a perfect pair. It has a small tag/plate at the front with text inscribed into it. (x)
A small Ocean Jasper given to him by Rosa to signify how special he is to her. (x)
A ring with an exquisitely cut emerald seated in mirror-polished silver. The words: 'In Defense of the Realm' are engraved on it.
